We’ll make an early morning start by car to visit a producer of Parmigiano Reggiano where we have the precious opportunity of seeing how they make the cheese, from the arrival of milk to the making of the big wheels.
We will also visit their storage (with dozens of cheeses) and will have a tasting.
The tour continues with a visit to a Parma ham producer (Prosciutto di Parma is the best in the world!) where we will see the complete process that the leg of pork undergoes from its arrival through all the various stages of maturing which we can visit.
After the company tour we’ll enjoy a hearty, traditional lunch, with homemade pasta specialties from Parma and all the company’s products.
If you like wine we can add a visit to a nearby winery, where we can have lunch with a tasting of 3 of their wines.
Later we'll go to Modena countryside to visit a Traditional Balsamic Vinegar site (under the roof), learn how the families make it in the barrels for 25 years and have a guided tasting of the different vintages in the impressive historic cellar to understand the astonishing difference with the industrial one.
We will be back in the afternoon.
